  1. Is looping bad or is it just natural for some people?

    Cognitive Functions
    'Looping', or a relatively strong dominant and tertiary function interaction. There are many online posts and websites saying that the looping is very very unhealthy or something, that it is inherently akin to a sickness. However, Objective Personality Typing proposed that it is natural and...
  2. What's my type based on what the description entails? (take two - questionairre edition)

    What's my personality type?
    Hello. Recently I've gotten more insight into cognitive functions and might've discovered I may have Te over Ti. Which led me to make this article. The reason for this is that my Te is fairly visible (but no more than tertiary) and definitely reigns over Ti, in a way, and I am sure that anyone...
  3. am i an entp in a ne-fe loop or enfp?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    i'll just start this by saying that english isn't my first language, so i'll probably make some grammar mistakes or whatever. i thought this would be a small text but turns out its fucking huge, so, if you have the patience to read it (entps i know you dont), i thank you SO much. i need help...
  4. Ne-Fe loop: ESFJ or ENTP?

    What's my personality type?
    There's this person i know who has very strong Fe and Ne, i think he might be in a loop, but i'm not sure which is stronger, really. Extroverted Feeling: - very open & caring guy, always asking how everyone is, very inclusive - genuinely comforts you when you're sad, expresses "gushy" emotions...
  5. [INFP] Fellow INFPS, how do I get out of this dreaded TE grip?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, fellow INFPers. I've been miserable lately, and I've found that it may be correlated to this dreaded preference I have towards TE, ahead of my other Functions. FI-NE-SI-TE If we were to relate this to a metaphor of some sort, I'd like to say this grip was brought on by a chain-reaction...
  6. Could I still be Enfp if i dont relate to enfp loops and grips?

    Cognitive Functions
    I’ve been thinking too much about my type.I tell myself an enfp,however I don’t %100 relate to it. It can be because of my anxiety disorder but i just need to be sure... On the other hand I looked at entp loops and grips(because they are dom ne too)it was SO relatable. However I am too...
  7. Please explain 'loops' to me?

  8. Function Morphing

    Cognitive Functions
    Ok so this is kind of a crazy theory but I've noticed a strange behavior from some people including myself. I'm an INTP so I'll use that type as an example. INTP's functions are (in order) Ti, Ne, Si, Fe. Now every so often (usually when I'm interacting with someone who has strong Fe) I'll...
  9. [INFP] Developing functions

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I struggle with this for a few weeks. I notice that I´m flowing from one loop to another. I´ve heard about Fi-Si and Fi-Te, but I have also problem with over-using Fi. I´ve read that developing secondary function Ne would help and I would also like to strenghten Si and Te. Therefore please...
  10. [INTP] Living in the Shadows- Shadow Functions.

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I think I am going into a Ti Si loop again. :crying: I really need to work on my Ne. I was looking up some info on loops and came across shadow functions. I forgot a bit about them and am confused now. Here are my questions: 1. I saw some places say that INTP's shadow is the ESFJ and others...
  11. [INTJ] New Way to Differentiate Between INTJ and ISTJ

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    A lot of people can't decide between two types because they seem so similar in their descriptions. For instance, some think they're INTJ when they are really ISTJ because of the similarities of secondary Te and tertiary Fi. I was stuck between INTJ and ISTJ myself for awhile. So I've come up...
  12. [INFJ] Is it possible to change the order of functions?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    For example: as an INFJ, is it possible to over-develop Ti to such a degree that it becomes your auxiliary function instead of your tertiary? Just as when you exercise certain muscles, they will strengthen and grow. Any thoughts on whether it could actually be possible? If possible, is it...
  13. [INTP] Breaking an unbreakable cycle

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Over the past few years I've noticed a re-occurring plot line in a various forms a media that is just depressing the heck out of me. It generally goes the main character is stuck in some sort of cycle, spiral, loop, etc. and although they don’t realize it until the end of the story, no matter...
  14. [ISFJ] ISFJ Si-Ti loop

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hello, I read a lot about how INTJs and INTPs experience primary-tertiary loops, but I don't find much information on many of the other types. I was wondering in particular whether a Si-Ti loop for an ISFJ is in any way similar to an INTP's Ti-Si loop, and what it is like for you :)
  15. Untypable function preferences in general; INTJ-INTP-INFP specifically

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Sorry if the title is confusing (i know, it is). This post is about MB types and cognitive function hierarchies, how they correspond and more importantly how they can contradict each other. In this context, this is also somewhat of a "what type am I?" thread: this is the jumping off point for...
  16. [ISFP] Can someone help me with NiFi loops?

    ISFP Forum - The Artists
    I was wondering if someone can help me by explaining NiFi loops to me. I think i am in a NiFi loop right now and it sucks. My Fi is really developed and its getting in the way. I keep questioning my type. I used to think i was infj, but i found out that i'm an isfp in a NiFi loop. Can someone...
  17. My type and romance/relationships.

    What's my personality type?
    So I took the MBTI test about two weeks ago and it came up with INFJ. After reading the description, it appeared to fit me pretty well. I decided to read up some forums about other people's experiences with being an INFJ (both out of curiosity and to seek confirmation) and that is how I stumbled...
  18. [ISTP] Is this the ni loop

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Fatalism Sounds like everyone's description of our infamous loop, is it?
